Rescue

The PBGV Club of America Cares!

If you have one or more PBGVs that you cannot keep for reasons such as illness, family changes, financial changes, please contact the Club’s Rescue Committee instead of turning the dogs in to a shelter.  The Rescue Committee will act quickly and in confidence to find a new, suitable, home for your dog, regardless of age. 

  • Have you seen a PBGV in a shelter?  Please contact the Rescue Committee and let them know about the particulars of the situation. 
  • Are you interested in fostering (providing a temporary home for) a PBGV in Rescue?
  • Are you interested in providing a new Forever home to a PBGV?

This page provides information about the Rescue Committee, contacting a member of the committee, and submitting a rescue application.


Any and all persons interested in the well being of the PBGV breed are needed by rescue!  If you are aware of any PBGV in a shelter in your area, please contact your Regional Representative IMMEDIATELY!
